Coopers Creek Select Vineyards Chalk Ridge Hawke's Bay Syrah (2018)

The good-value 2018 vintage (4.5*) is a sturdy, finely structured, highly fragrant red, hand-picked, blended with a splash of Viognier (1.3 per cent) and matured for a year in French oak casks (27 per cent new). It has excellent concentration of plum, spice and black-pepper flavours, showing good complexity, and a lasting finish. Best drinking 2022+.
